But moving on isn’t the problem–it’s the dishonest and deceitful manner in which he did it.
Jezebel is a terrible gossipmongering website that likes to encourage women to resent other women while claiming to be “feminists,” but if you’re Thurston Moore and have just unapologetically confessed to a six-year affair with a much younger woman, the last thing you want to do is hurl “men’s rights”-sounding insults at this time.
And considering, if a prior poster’s account is accurate, Eva was having an affair with Thurston while preparing for her wedding, I’m pretty skeptical about the prospects of this relationship. I guess we’ll see how Thurston Moore feels about it in a few years, with the benefit of hindsight and in a better place to objectively judge his actions.
I disagree. It’s a bad thing to do, definitely, and generally I would hope a decent person would express more remorse about an affair and not treat it in such a blase way, but I don’t think it inherently makes you a bad person. Good people sometimes do bad things, and people change.
Very much in the vein of her first two albums, but a great song nonetheless. The part where it sounds like she’s starting to cry is really intense.
Normally I would cringe at an acoustic folky cover of a song like this, but The Boss gets a pass in my book.
Also, the populist themes of the lyrics go pretty well with his everyman working class persona. (Even though one may argue Springsteen might as well be royalty in the US and especially Jersey.)
There needs to be a remix where Jay Z’s atrocious verse disappears.
Paranthetical included so that comments are not taken the wrong way.
Also, Ezra Koenig’s review of “Nothing Was the Same” is looking rather prescient right now.
The subtext of Drake’s apology (wherein “Rolling Stone” shall henceforth be referred to as “muhhhfuckas,” and “Drake” shall be referred to as “us”):
MUHHHFUCKAS NE’ER LOVED US!!! YEAH, MUHHHFUCKAS NE’ER LOVED US!!!!!!
Sounds kinda like Avey Tare’s Haunted Graffiti …
More like better than Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and Shakespeare combined. The market has spoken!
Gahhh I’ve been wanting to go to Barcelona for so long, such a beautiful-looking and awesome city (or so I hear).
I just hope Primavera continues to be the best festival on the planet by the time I finally make it there in the somewhat distant future!
I just don’t like the notion of feeling guilty about liking music. Or the notion that I *should* feel guilty about liking any of the music I like. It’s like a nagging apostrophe, like I somehow have to justify liking something because I’m accountable to some sort of ever-present panel of critics when, really, my conscience is quite clear about liking whatever music I do like.

“her attempted feminist anthem ‘Hard Out Here.’”
Lol passive aggressive? I really can’t stand that song or video though so I agree.
This one’s approximately 48,342,532,432,489 better, though!
Wow, this guy’s a true Pizza Party Monster…
Thanks for the recommendation! I somehow was oblivious to this B-sides collection, so I’ll have to check that out.
Wish Sky Ferreira had made the list. “You’re Not The One” and “I Blame Myself” are awesome, had them on repeat for quite a while. Oh and “Recover” by CHVRCHES is an amazingly huge, hook-filled anthem.
I love “Hannah Hunt,” but it took a while to grow on me. I think it requires a lot of patience, and is best appreciated while paying close attention to the lyrics, which are great.
My personal favorite from the album was “Don’t Lie,” but the two songs on this list are excellent as well–and I’m pleased people didn’t just choose “Diane Young” by default, because that’s probably my least favorite song VW has ever released.
Have you seen the video of the performance or any of their interviews? I’m pretty sure they don’t know what irony is …
If he wanted to treat Kim Shattuck as completely replaceable and at-will, he should have had the courtesy to state so up-front rather than spring it on her by having his manager fire her. That’s just completely disrespectful and embarrassing and a crappy way to treat a person.
Unless I’m mistaken, I’ve seen no indication that she was a touring or temporary bassist, so basic decency and PR would seem to dictate you should at least speak to her face-to-face about any problems and offer at least a one-line statement on the change in line-up. But none of those considerations really seem to be weighing on Black Francis, who seems more intent on shunning the same fans whose money he is asking for …

A whole Lou Reed pizza, just for me!!!
